IPCC Tethering Hack Blocked on iPhone OS 3.1b2

IPCC Tethering Hack Blocked on iPhone OS 3.1b2

Apple has blocked the IPCC tethering hack used to activate iPhone tethering on the AT&T network, according to a TUAW report.

TUAW has learned that, with the release of iPhone OS 3.1 beta 2, tethering via the IPCC hack no longer works for AT&T customers. While iPhone OS 3.0 provides support for tethering, AT&T has yet to officially support it. As a workaround to obtain tethering (as well as MMS for some), some users have modified their carrier files (IPCC). As of 3.1 beta 2, this no longer works.

Those who need tethering may want to avoid the 3.1 update when it becomes available.

No, its not! My tethering works fine. On ATT in US, iPhone 3GS running 3.1beta.

Did you update to the new 3.1 beta 2? It is apparently only on the second release of the 3.1 software that it will block the tethering. If all else fails, there is always PDANet since I would imagine that all of you guys have your iPhone's jailbroken.

You've used 20gig in a month! Have you seen any extra charges to you bill? You're on at&t right?
